Aspects of punting....

2 posts in this topic

....... which continually boggle the mind even after being

in this business a considerable time....

eg 1: guy(?) emails saying how much for an hour

even though he has just looked at my site

and pictures, my statement that I do not

accept emails until after we have met therefore

he must know my fees if he has browsed the

site etc

ok that one was par for the course........ but all too common all the

same

eg 2 and this is the biggie:

a long standing client who is hot hot hot on discretion ( I am not permitted

to return emails even though he emails me from time to time... he shares

his email address with the wifey )

I can only text him by sending a "." which means he knows it is me and he

will get back stating my name so I know it was he who picked up the phone..... oh did I not mention, they share a phone too.

emails me with an attachment.. to a very large and very clear photo of his

daughter's wedding last week. There they are, him, wife, sons and daughters

etc.

He had already told me what time and which church, very close to where I live too.... and many other personal details about his family.

Ok I realise he must trust me without doubt, but that photograph was the bit that shocked me. He is so paranoid about being found out, I am asked not to

wear any body creams etc which have a perfume ..... yet he emails me a full

blown picture of his whole family.

I think I am going to have to have words with him :eek:

( he says he dare not ever browse punternet but if he is fibbing then yes Mr

this is about you! )

Your point one is what i do although i only phone newbies to me, i have zero interest in emailing. I look on a site/profile as being a guide, not gospel fact. The reason is through personal experience i found relying on the site/profile on its own was costing me more money or less services, this is because some WGs had "forgotten" to update their sites/profiles so a service i really wanted was actually not on offer or an extra, so i require phone confirmation that the services i require are on offer at the price advertised. By doing this i have done all i can to ensure its clear what i require, if i get their and the lady deviates from what was agreed on the phone its clear to me she is a liar and i walk out and go elsewhere. I would say its most usually Adultw0rk where the lady has ticked every service possible that i have had problems.

Its entirely up to the lady of course if she doesnt wish to discuss services and just refers me to her site/profile, but she wont get my business nowadays. In my many years of punting its rare an Indie wont discuss services and prices on the phone, which is contrary to many WGs on here i have noted.
